How to Make

  1. Take a pair of glasses and choose a cellophane colour. Cut the cellophane into small squares, slightly bigger than the eye openings of the glasses.
  2. Position the cellophane pieces on the reverse of the eye openings so they cover the ‘lense’ area and secure in place with a glue gun or glue dots.
  3. Decorate the glasses with stickers, glitter and embellishments.

Top Tip

Trace around the eye openings onto paper, then cut out the paper and use it as a template to cut the right size of cellophane.
